Fire up the flux capacitor, buckle your seatbelts, and prepare for a cinematic trip down memory lane. London’s Back In Time Exhibition, located at Camden Market Hawley Wharf, will transport you back to where it all started; with Marty McFly, Doc Brown, a revamped DeLorean and some stolen plutonium. You’ll be plunged inside the time-warping universe of the franchise as you explore Europe’s largest collection of memorabilia from the films, watch fascinating behind-the-scenes footage and relive iconic moments through interactive displays – got the skills to bust out an epic guitar solo? This is your chance. There are only days left before it closes on March 31, so why don’t you make like a tree and get over there?
The Back In Time Exhibition features over 70 items used by the cast and crew over the course of the trilogy. You can expect to see everything from hoverboards to concept drawings; each costume, sketch and prop is a fascinating piece of the jigsaw that made up these much-loved films. One moment you’ll be peering with a puzzled brow, trying to work out Marty’s self-lacing shoes from the future, the next you’ll be plunged into the wild west as you take in the gun belt and pistol once used by Michael J. Fox’s stuntman, then you’ll be slipping into the seat of the uncanny DeLorean replica, ready for a journey through space and time.
On top of all the incredible memorabilia, you’ll be able to take a peek at some of the scripts, complete with the red scrawl of notes, and watch interviews with the Back To The Future stars. Listen to Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Steven Spielberg, Robert Zemeckis and more spill making-of secrets from on set that will make you feel as if you were right there beside them during filming. Though, if you really want to be transported back to the set in the 80s, look no further than the interactive displays, each one inviting you to recreate familiar scenes (think riding hoverboards and sending the crowd wild with a guitar solo at a school dance). You’ll want to keep your phones juiced up if you want to capture those poses on camera.
We’ve all wondered about travelling through time – whether it’s whizzing off to the future to see what newfangled technology has changed the world or going back to a land before time and seeing prehistoric creatures in the flesh – and these daydreams were brilliantly been brought to life with Back To The Future. It’s no wonder the classic comedy has millions of fans. What’s more, it is in partnership with Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research so you have the chance to donate on-site when you visit. Grab your tickets now and prepare to be transported inside the screen at this time-bending exhibition, fans will truly be in cinematic heaven celebrating what is widely agreed to be one of the best films ever made.
